and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs December 2015 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs December 2015 Release!   Who doesn't love a relaxing scenic drive through the countryside?  The stamp sets being released this month by Our Daily Bread Designs are gorgeous and will enable you to create some beautiful scenes on your cards and stamping projects.  Get ready to see some breathtaking scenic creations from the talented Breadstick Designers!

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until December 2, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers' Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


Both of my samples were made with several of the new products being released this month!

Creative Nugget:  The covered bridge in Safe Travels can be adapted to any seasonal card project.  A winter scene was created for this card using paper from the Christmas Collection 2014 and by adding a few splatters of acrylic paint and highlights made with a white paint pen.  The scene was cut and matted using the new Rectangle Dies and Double Stitched Rectangle Dies…LOVE these!  The sentiment was cut using the Double Stitched Circle Dies and matted with the little tag in the Vintage Flourished Pattern Die Set.  A snowdrift was made using the Leafy Edged Border Dies, and the Small Bow Dies and metallic thread were used to add an accent to finish the card.

The Living Water stamp set was used to make my second sample.

Creative Nugget:  Colors and papers from the Blooming Garden Collection were chosen to create a springtime scene with the beautiful water mill from the Living Water stamp set.  The focal panel was again cut with the Double Stitched Rectangles and the flowery hillside was made with the Leafy Edged Border Dies.  The sentiment was cut and matted with the Stitched Oval Dies.  A jute bow was added to complete the card.

Awesome cards Cathy. I always find it so hard to make a card for the males in my life and these make it much easier. Thanks for sharing.

Cathy,
LOVE your Bridge card.
I have photo's of a Covered Bridge in the Winter, that your Bridge card reminds me SO much of. Just love this stamp, as you say it will be quite versatile, to many seasons.

Liz H. said...

Love your Bridge card. This one reminds me SO MUCH of a photograph I have of a local bridge here in Indiana, also in the winter.

This stamp as you say, will be very versatile with the seasons.
